Sauce For Tlie Gander The \\oild has seen many drives for ddoption of a univei.sal language. No ~ one, however, has, ever got anywhere \\itb a butfgeslion thai there be a inii- vcisal language among professions, and >et it would teem a highly valuable move When an ordinary person tries lo " wade through the lore of the profession of another, lie invariably is stymied by strange or highly technical verbiage. The fields of law and medicine, in particular, arc morasses of stiango woAls to the layman. ~ It is inleiestmg, therefore, to read ""the news, item ovit of Albany, N. Y., levealmg lhat a court of appeals had to Uuow up its bands on a case in- voUrag .motion picture corporations because of its unfamiharity with language ' .-used 1 by'movie, people. , It is wwnehcw pleasant to see the legal gentry, who toss about "habeas coipiis" and "ceitioiari" with supercilious Abandon, get a taste of their own r medicine. Unprofitable Tactics Ameiicaus, \\lio spent live billions of " do'lais on vacations last year, will ^_ sphuge even moio this suiirmer, vuvi- " ous binvcvs indicate. European coun- tiies especially will benefit, reveals a noted tiavel agency. One of the prin- - ^ cipal icawms this will ha so, it points ' - out, is that theic has been a';lessening *—- of iwhtical tension abroad. • 1 T~ If this is the case, tourists must \j obviously favor countries that are uu> a" rtiftled by politics, and it is (Utile i»s" 1 sible lhat lato this year dictatorships, ^ _ that aie bleeped in it, will be very 7^T doleful. If they aie baldly dampened by the shower of American gold, dictators may get the point, lhat an overemphasis on — political activity and bellicosity does not always pay dividends. Which would be a very good thing. and announces that the. New York City situation is being investigated. Stamping' out corrupt elements in unions would seem to be about the wisest policy that both he and John L. Lewis could pursue at this time. Now that court approval of. the Wagner act lends impetus to union organization, the future progress of the A. F. of L.. and C. I. 0. depends largely on the • amount of public confidence they win. One of the surest methods of insuring thai confidence would be a widespread purge of (jueslioiiiible unions. Initial Step Following Ihe prolcsl of 10 New York City locals of a -national union that its leaders employed criminals, ex-convicts, and racketeers, A. F. of L Piesidenl William Green promises that the American Federation of Labor will not stand racketeering in any form, Keeping Munitions Home Senator Gerald P. Nyc and Congressman Hamilton Fish jr., seem to have the idea that, if the scheme of embargoing munitions shipments to warring nations is sound in small doses, it ought lo bo equally sound in big doses. They have introduced a bill in Coii- jjress, aA'ordingly, which would b v an all munitions shipments—not only in lime of war, but in lime of peace as well. The only exceptions woiild be, shipments to nations on the American continent "engaged in war against a non-American slate or slates."' There is a great deal of logic in this idea. \Vc are now .selliii}; munitions abroad in so many <|iiartcrs that, if we get into another war in the near future, some American boys will certainly be'killed by munitions of American manufacture. There is much to be said for a proposal to take us out of the munitions-exporting business permanently, in peace and war alike. Progress In The Air A newspaper Hem reveals that production of American-type- planes is lo be an outstanding feature of Russia's plane-building program. This news, coming shortly after revelations that Russian American-type craft completely outclassed other ships in engagements over Madrid, should bolster this country's pride over its progress in this lino of aviation. Another news, story reveals that two Akron, 0., inventors have patented a now type of airship control that may avert the danger of airships, struck by gusts or squalls, twisting and breaking in midair.' It was just such disasters that befell the navy's Shenandoah, Akron, and Macon and shattered the nation's faith in Jightfir-than-air craft. Whether the. new invention will change this attitude remains to be seen. 1C it does, and-somehow dispels the jinx lhat has dogged our dirigibles, Uncle Sam should just about lead the aviation parade.
